  1. Especially when it looks like the same background as a UK Sports cars ad!!
  2. Sports Racer at Reihms. It has to be done if you are ever in the area πŸ‘πŸ˜Š
  3. Wouldn't there be a dash warning of some sort if the alternator failed? The engine warning light or something.
  4. It's been a while coming, but one to add to the Sports Racer club πŸ™‚ These Evora's are great cars!!
  5. https://www.pistonheads.com/buy/listing/14682546 Strong money? I have a deposit on a 2013 model for what I thought was at the pointy end price wise, but now I'm thinking it's about right...
  6. Yes, I'm hoping to be back in this club again soon πŸ‘
  7. Gone already by the looks of it.... It did look good πŸ‘
  8. She does know how to pose 🀣
  9. Thanks for all the views. I'm having a look at it next week (If not sold before then) and will see if I feel sufficiently moved to buy itπŸ˜‰
  10. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202207288212087?fromRetailerStore=true&postcode=nn96pn Does anybody know anything about this car? I'm interested, but curious to hear feedback before I go and look at it.
  11. The answer to your question is "whatever you want" because we all want different things from a car. I wouldn't sell it over concerns about the clutch etc though. Everything is fixable. I had an LE Evora and would have no qualms about getting another. Loved it !
  12. Well, its only a matter of time isn't it? πŸ˜‰ I am curious to see when the first one pops up on the used car market..
  13. That's awesome, lovely saxes by all accounts....
  14. Well, these are saxes, but its only 1 additional letter so I thought I would share. These are 2 of my 4 saxes, the ones I gig with. The silver one is a tenor YAS62 made by Yamaha and the Gold one is an Alto Seles made by Selmer. Both nice saxes for different reasons. Apart from being nice instruments I am sure you will agree they are engineering marvels!! I play in a party band so if you are on the lookout for such a thing, please check out www.bigphatjukebox.com or https://www.facebook.com/bigphatjukebox Cheers ! Robin.
  15. I could not get in to the lotus for sale site, so thought I would post it here. 1982 Turbo with 75000 miles on the clock. The MOTs I have would suggest the mileage is correct and I have owned it since 2011. The car currently has 10 months MOT and was last serviced in May 2022. This car is not mint, but is in good useable condition. In 2013/14 It was subject to a refresh and engine rebuild which included the following replacement items. Turbo Water Pump Manifold Manifold adaptor Poly Bushes Engine and Gearbox mounts Clutch Alternator Re-Built Carbs Re-furbished fuel tanks and loads of other things... When the rebuild was finished the car was set up on a rolling road and it showed just under 200hp @ 5500rpm, not bad for an old car! The data sheet will be included in the sale. There was also many other bits and bobs done i.e replacement pipes etc at the same time. Since this work was done the car has covered approx 10000 miles. I have loads receipts for all of the above, along with lots of receipts that came with the car including a sale invoice from Paul Mattys from 1990 and the original service book with stamps up to 47000 miles, loads of old MOT’s and Tax discs This car is pretty original all around and has not really been messed around with over the years, I am pretty sure it’s the original radio too. This car really turns heads. You get admiring conversations at petrol stations and people filming you as they go past on motorways! An absolute design classic inside and out. It is just in the process of having the carpets changed, so the interior pics on here are prior to the old carpets being removed.. The new carpets will be supplied and fitted before you take the car away. Price Β£29,000.00 If you would like to view the car please get in contact with me.
